Comments:

After taking about 10 weeks off of running completely for a foot injury, and just starting back wo weeks ago, I wasn't in shape to "race" this or challenge my PR, so just decided to run it as part of my long run for the week. Perhaps even walk.

We started further abck than usual since it was a fun run, and it's so crowded back there the first two miles are basically dodging people, and hard to go any faster than 9:30 miles or so, which was our first mile split.

Annie and I just ran together at a fairly easy but steady pace. We did work the last two miles a bit harder, and we negative split every mile but the last where we kind of shuffled up the hill. Came around the last bend, just happy to be under an hour at this point. Time for a PR later, but it was actually nice finishing this race refreshed for a change :)
What would you do differently?:

not get injured in the fall?
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, grabbed a water and a little food, walked to the gym to pick up my phone, then all the way down to south redondo, i.e. back where we just ran to, to meet my wife fior breakfast. 3 miles walked after the run. oofa. that hurt more.

I'm so, so glad your foot is better and you're back to running again!  Good for you recognizing that this wasn't a race to race, but a great way to get your long run in for the weekend.

We have new 10 and 20 week training plans for the New Year! These mini sprint plans are very conservative and will get any person thinking of training for a triathlon ready to cross the finish-line.

Cotswold super sprint - UK. Lots of bodies colliding, I swam half over someone, got kicked by some bloody breaststroker, and as a mob we poured towards the first buoy.

Already a cyclist and not a bad swimmer, I figured all I had to do was build up to running a few miles and I’d be ready to go. The challenge invigorated me, and I ran out to buy new running shoes.

Since I didn't have much time and since it's a super sprint, am I OK just go to at the training relatively hard through Thursday or even Friday?

As a triathlete, there is one acronym that you just can’t fathom ever having next to your name in a race report – DNF: DID NOT FINISH.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had weight issues. I remember standing on the scale as a child weighing 60 pounds and feeling fat. My family dealt with stress by eating.
